On 24-25 March 2015, UNDP Regional Bureau for Europe and the ECSI organized in Istanbul, Turkey an Open Data Workshop for NGOs in Euro-Asia called WeLoveData. The workshop was designed to address the needs and challenges that the growing open data community is facing in Europe and Central Asia. The workshop brought together 30 journalists, civic activists, and data analysts from over 15 countries across the region.
AIS /Open Data Albania was presented by two of its members, Ms. Shefiko Hajna ( Data Analyst ) for our Money Governments, and Politics Program, and Ms. Marilda Mancka, one of the founders of the organization and the Open Data Albania working group. They shared with the workshop participants the experience of the Albanian NGO in opening data regarding the Public Treasury, Declaration of Assets of Senior Officials, Electoral Spending, and other datasets available on the Spending Data Albania portal. The agenda of the event was very interesting and provided a unique opportunity for civil societies of Euro-Asian countries to share their experiences.
